Two Styles, One Room: Vintage Meets Avant-Garde

 Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! It’s Paula & Rebecca from Sea Island Drive again! We’re back with another installment of Two Styles. One Room. Today’s room is a very chic combination of vintage and avant-garde.

Sometimes the best way to highlight a certain style is to really juxtapose it. That is exactly how you can really appreciate the vintage elements in this room. Paired against the more avant-garde items, you can really appreciate the details of the two styles even in simple black and white.

The vintage chandelier and the herringbone wood floors keep this London living room warm with old world charm, while the avant-garde metal side tables and the wide range of art pieces, bring the room into the future. The sofas in the home are the perfect example of vintage meets avant-garde. Even though they are a vintage style, by re-upholstering the front of them in a bold, graphic stripe and leaving the back exposed, it makes them a little more out of the ordinary and you can see how these two style can blend seamlessly together.

What do you think? Would you like to mix these two styles in your home?
